Each shower room has a huge shower area with mixer shower and glass screen. There’s also a wash hand basin, mirror and flushing toilet.  There is hot water and we also provide mini stool for little ones to reach the toilet and sink. There is full lighting in our toilets with an automatic sensor which switches lights on when you enter and off when you leave. You don’t need to take a torch to the loo!

The tents cannot be locked. Therefore, we don’t recommend leaving valuables in the tent when you are off site, the tents cannot be locked. We can however provide a combination padlock which can be placed on the shower room door to allow you to leave valuables within a secure area.  

Q. Is there a campfire?
We do not allow campfires for safety reasons. However, each tent hsd it’s own chiminea so you can enjoy some heat outdoors whilst watching our beautiful sunsets. The chiminea should always be placed on the stones and well away from the tent and decking. They should not be used on the grass. We recommend bringing your own outdoor folding chairs for sitting out as we request that our outdoor seating is not removed from the veranda.  There is a large picnic bench provided near the BBQ area for each tent.

Q. Is there wifi connection?
Yes, however we aim to provide a location and setting that means less reliance by all ages on technology!  We have chosen not to provide wifi within our tents, but we do provide a free wifi hot-spot within our Reception. This means you can check urgent emails and look on the internet for local places of interest. There’s also an information room on our caravan site which is nearby which you are welcome to make use of.  

Q. If there is no electricity in your tents, is there somewhere I can charge my mobile phone?
Yes, we have mains sockets within our Reception for charging mobile phones and other electronic devices.   

Other Questions

Q. Do you accept dogs?
Our guests’ enjoyment is our priority. We do welcome dogs. However, we only allow dogs by prior arrangement and only one dog per tent. Our tents are not fully ‘dog proof’ and dogs must be on leads at all times whilst on site.  Dogs are not allowed within the bedrooms and must either sleep in a dog cage in the tent or in your car. You will need to bring a dog cage with you. Dogs must NOT be let off the lead in the tents field and cannot be left on site alone at any time. Owners of loose, barking or antisocial dogs may be asked to leave in the interests of ensuring other guests enjoy their stay. No refund will be given.  

Q. Where is the nearest shop?
You find 3 convenience stores in the local village of Plean (1.5 miles). There’s also a bakery, a pharmacy and two takeaway food shops. For a greater selection, there is a Co-op and Sainsbury’s in Denny, around 2 miles from Carr’s Hill. A little further away there’s an Asda in Larbert and a Morrison’s this side of Stirling.

Q. Do you take group bookings?
We do accept small group bookings but unfortunately not hen or stag parties.  We are above all a family site and are only able to accommodate small groups who want to enjoy our facilities and peaceful rural location.
